Journey Start Photo Shoot

March 1 - 3, 2010
Permit me a few glamour shots that my friend Kristen wanted to take before the trip began. It was still snowing and freezing cold in early March, Chicago.
The bike's fenders and the helmet were originally white and I spray-painted them Olive Green, using Krylon Fusion paints with a clear coat. Yes, I know it's not the most bright and visible color scheme, but I had a vision about the look :)
Setting sun on my last 5 years in Chicago. It's been a great home and I've made many close friends.
Going bald should be useful in the warm climates, but brrr, it's freezing up top for Chicago's winters.
With my close bud, Allen, from New Mexico, who helped me a lot in getting going on this trip and who's taking care of a few things for me back in Chicago while I'm on this trip.
sanDRina and I ready to head South!
It's not as icy as it looks, was more slushy, but thankfully I didn't drop the bike.

In action thru foreign lands materializing out of the dark...
My home for the next few years. Let's get rolling!
